The Rhode Island Board of Elections is now debating whether to transmit the election results from the individual polling places to the board via the internet; the board is worried that the Russians may interfere with the results.
In Rhode Island, unlike most states, the polling places are not that far from the Board of Elections. Other states’ polling places may be hundreds of miles from their boards of elections, therefore requiring use of the internet.
Rhode Island’s solution is to have a person from each polling location download the results on a memory stick and deliver the memory sticks to the Board of Elections. Later, the results can be validated by the paper ballots. This way, the results would be safe, accurate and delivered in a timely manner.
